We came here at the recommendation of the Conquistador concierge. We started our meal on a high note when we ordered the Passion Fruit Sangria. My father ordered a Puerto Rican food sampler in which everything was amazing. I think my favorite was the mushrooms. My husband ordered the Chicken Asopao and it was good.. except for the chicken in... More

We loved every bite. I loved the seafood aseopes and chicken mafunga. But, I would guess all dishes would be equally wonderful.

My kids and I loved this place. The food was the best tasting of the four restaurants that we tried in this area and it was also lower cost than most of the others. I had the stuffed chicken breast with manchango cheese and cheese flan for dessert and they were great. 5 minutes from the Waldorf.

If you are complaining about service, delays getting your food or anything other than the food, then you don't understand Puerto Rico. As my father states, "Puerto Rico has the best of both worlds: You are in Latin America, and you are in the US at the same time." Just understand: you will get good or exceptional service only if...

This restaurant has excellent food and awesome view. The Tapas were amazing. We went on a monday night and the place was full and food took a long time. I dont recommend the ginger mojito but I do recommend the Passion Fruit Sangria.

the puerto rican paella, tapas, the white sangria.... it was all wonderful! We went to this place on our last night at Las Casitas and we should have gone here on our first night. By far the best meal we had while visiting Fajardo, PR

The service was slow, but once we got our food it was good. We sent back our first bottle of Merlot because it tasted a little off. Upon getting the second bottle, a Cab, it was a little off as well. We finally decided it must have been that the bottles were not stored properly for the heat conditions. Park... More

Not every restaurant stays open late for dinner. We were driving around and my brother found this in his Yelp app. The prices were reasonable and the food was delicious. It was just after 8pm when we stopped here. There were two other families in the restaurant and the service was friendly. As with all restaurants in PR, the wait... More

The view from their patio is absolutely stunning and the food is wonderful! We loved the sangria (try the passionfruit!) and we're still talking about the skirt steak tapas. The seafood paella was a little too fishy for me, but my husband loved it. Definitely get a meal here while you're in Fajardo.

We were a group of 6. The server Maria was very kind and attentive, even the owner came by to meet us and let us know about the special drinks, plates and the homemade spicy sauces . The papatas bravas, mahi mahi, paella, lobsters mofongo and the desserts were delightful. Very good experience, highly recommended.
